The Jets have at least one supporter. “Game of Thrones” author R.R. Martin is a lifelong fan. But this is how he describes it, “Life for a Jets fan is an unending torment.” Say no more, right?
The New Jersey-based team hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2010. Twenty years is a long time. For the past few years, the New York Jets have been one of the league’s worst teams. Check out their record for those years: 5-11, 5-11 and 4-12. Dismal. Maybe next season.
Lingering Super Bowl LI Misery
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he’s over it. The legendary Super Bowl defeat at the hands of the Patriots who clobbered his team in overtime after a 25-point comeback is all in the past, he says. Moving on. He expects a Super Bowl contest in the not-so-distant future. On the other hand, the demoralizing loss is still afflicting traumatized fans. Players seem demoralized too.
Post-Super Bowl LI update: The Falcons scraped out a playoff run after a 10-6 season, defeating the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round. Next up, however, the Falcons were sidelined from the playoffs by losing to the Eagles who, incidentally, went on to win the championship ring. This guy is trying to build up the courage to face the source of Falcons fanbase misery. Meanwhile, he’ll take the New England Patriots farm team—and then they’ll get revenge. Soon.
The Eagles’ Royal Secret is Out
Prince Harry suits up every week during football season as Eagles quarterback, Carson Wentz. Alternatively, Carson Wentz just married Meghan Markle disguised as Prince of England. They are the same person. This fan, proudly hoisting his sign, is convinced.
Evidence? One popular meme-response goes something like, “Have you ever seen Carson Wentz and Prince Harry in the same room?” Their resemblance is striking. Final analysis? The two handsome strawberry blondes are long lost twins separated at birth.
A Lions Fan’s Pride
This fan is proud that his team is first in losing. His friend doesn’t look so sure. The Detroit Lions achieved a 0-16 season way back in 2008. That puts the Browns in second. Not until 2017, would the Cleveland Browns match the abysmal 0-16 shut-out record. To make things worse for the Browns, the Lions may be roaring their way back toward a respectable standing. Led by quarterback Matthew Stafford, hope in the franchise is back. As for the Browns, not so much.
The Lions made it to the playoffs in 2014 and 2016, but the team has never made it to the Super Bowl. It’s been so long since the team clinched an NFL championship that the contest was not yet known as the “Super Bowl.” But the Lions have won four championships, the most recent one in 1957. That trophy holds value, it’s an antique!
Leader of the Pack
“We’re going to the Super Bowl!” Scratch that. She’ll take the consolation prize. This Green Bay Packers fan wins the trophy for staying on the sunny side. Her favorite player making it to the Pro Bowl is awesome. Orlando in the middle of winter is paradise. Albeit, until 2015, the All-Star game was held at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. No contest. Orlando’s a downgrade.
The point is, only wide receiver Davante Adams (No. 12) and quarterback Aaron Rodgers (No. 17) got to compete at the 2017 NFL Pro Bowl in sunny Florida.
